One of our fave recipes, these little balls pack a punch of lactation goodness. They freeze well and are insanely easy to snack on during a breastfeeding session. Also, they're difficult to accidentally drop on baby's head! (No judgment if that's happened before!)
- 1 1/2 c rolled oats
- 1/2 c Milk Drunk protein powder (any flavor!)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1/2 c nut butter
- 3 T honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 c chocolate chips
- 2-4 T almond milk
Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and chia seeds to a large bowl. Add in nut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. Stir in chocolate chips. Mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly. Slowly add in liquid 1 tablespoon at a time and using hands (get dirty!) combine until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds together. If mixture is too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won’t hold shape. Roll into balls using hands.
Store in fridge (or freezer!) until ready to eat.
